A food company MD who says a probiotic milk drink from the Caucasus Mountains gave her relief from the symptoms of Crohn's Disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), has brought the drink to the UK.

Deborah Carr, MD of Carr Foods, was singing the praises of the product Nourish Kefir at IFE07.

The 100% natural probiotic fermented milk drink is based on a beverage drunk widely throughout Russia and Eastern Europe as a staple part of the diet. It has no additives, nor preservatives, sweeteners or flavours.

The product is currently available in 500ml bottles, which equates to three or four servings.
